We reserve the right to substitute materials and alter specifications without prior notice as our manufacturers may alter specifications as products are developed and improved. If you have any specific requirements that need to be met exactly we recommend checking current specification prior to ordering and we shall endeavour to inform of any such amendment or change. Each Product purchased is sold subject to its Product Description which sets out additional Specific Conditions related to that Product including, without limitation, terms and conditions concerning estimated delivery dates and times, warranties, after-sales service and guarantees. Each products is made by hand therefore slight variations in quoted measurements are possible and do not constitute a manufacturing fault. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of Products appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Although we aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the information including Product Descriptions appearing on this Website at a particular time may not always reflect the position exactly at the moment you place an order.
Please note all products on this web site are manufactured to order, therefore we do not accept general returns or cancellations, from placing your order you are liable for the full order value and acceptance of delivery. Orders are placed for products on the Website by pressing the confirm order button at the end of the checkout process. We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from longbeds.com. When your order has been processed we will send you an order confirmation email to confirm acceptance of your order.
Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:
The product ordered is no longer unavailable.
Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment.
The identification of a pricing or product description error.
You not meeting the criteria set out in the main Terms & Conditions.
Change or Cancel an Order
Unfortunately in most circumstances it’s not possible to cancel made to measure orders. If you wish to cancel an order please contact us to enquire if your goods have gone into production as it is not possible to cancel an order once it in production. If you’d like to add products to your order, please place a new order for these items.
The product prices displayed do not include delivery. The delivery charges can be viewed on the Website in the Delivery section. Please note some remote areas including Scotland, the South West and outlying Islands are subject to confirmation on the stated price and may occur an additional surcharge. If a delivery surcharge is applicable Longbeds will contact you to confirm the additional cost before processing your order.
Delivery and Assembly charges include installation where required, i.e. assembly of your new furniture ‘in situ’. Where it is agreed that we shall install the Goods, then we will do so as soon as practicable after delivery, and usually at the same time as delivery. We will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of us installing the Goods or in the event of any delay in installing the Goods. For the avoidance of doubt this includes, but is not limited to, any loss of earnings through a cancelled, failed or otherwise unsuccessful scheduled delivery arrangement.
You are responsible for ensuring that the access to the area and the area itself for the Goods to be installed is clear of obstruction prior to our arrival. We are not responsible for moving any existing furniture or any other objects. We will not take any unwanted furniture or other objects away for disposal.
We will use reasonable endeavours to complete delivery on or before any delivery dates which we have estimated at the time of placing the Order. We shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused.
You shall accept a mutually pre-arranged delivery time/date and you are responsible for ensuring that (i) you provide adequate delivery instructions, and (ii) appropriate access is available to the delivery person(s) and their vehicle, and (iii) you, or a responsible adult on your behalf, are present to accept the delivery. If you are the cause of a failed delivery attempt, either due to failure on your responsibilities above or for any other reason whatsoever, then we reserve the rights to: charge you for the unsuccessful delivery attempt and charge you for a redelivery, if applicable.
If you wish to change the delivery date once it is agreed then please give us no less than 2 Business Days notice prior to delivery. Notice within 2 Business Days of a pre-arranged delivery time/date may incur a rescheduling charge.
Responsibility for inspecting the Goods rests solely with you. You shall examine the Goods upon delivery and shall promptly (in any event within 14 days of delivery) notify us of any apparent damage, defect or shortages. Your failure to notify us within 14 days will result in you being deemed to have accepted them. After acceptance, you shall not be entitled to reject Goods which are not in accordance with the Order Confirmation. There are no circumstances in which you can reject the Goods on the basis of defects or failures which are so slight, that your rejection would be unreasonable.
All products on this web site are made to order, therefore we do not accept general returns or cancellations, from placing your order you are liable for the full order value. As such it is essential to measure all rooms and access doors as you will remain liable for the full order value if delivery fails because of difficulty of access. This does not affect your statutory rights when goods are faulty, or not as described.
In the instance of our accepting goods to be returned we will give prior written notification before items can be returned. Returns are required to be sent well packaged un-used, and in original, undamaged wrapping. If we find that the product has not been returned to us in fully resalable condition, we reserve the right to refuse a refund on the item, or make a deduction on the refund value.
In the unlikely event that your goods prove defective please contact us to advance the appropriate action. Should a genuine manufacturing or materials fault occur within 12 months from the date of purchase we will repair or replace the product completely free of charge. After the first 12 months but within the 5 year warranty period Longbeds will have the right and the discretion to arrange repair or replace the product, charging you for one fifth of the current retail price multiplied by the total number of years you have owned the bed.
Longbeds reserve the right to refuse this offer if defect is caused by misuse or where product has become soiled, unsanitary, has excessive wear and tear, or where the mattress has been used on a unsuitable base or foundation. Body impression is considered normal on luxury mattresses and does not constitute a manufacturing fault. Where a product is replaced we will endeavor to match the specification, material, and colour but reserve the right to substitute alternatives. If a product with a reported fault is collected and on inspection found to have no material or manufacturing fault we reserve the right to charge for costs incurred in processing the inspection including but not limited to collection and redelivery of the product.
For the purpose of our guarantee on goods exported from Mainland UK, it is the responsibility of the customer to return the goods to Mainland UK at their expense for inspection of manufacturing faults. Similarly, it is at the customers' expense to transport any replacements or returns out of the United Kingdom thereafter.
Risk and Retention of Title
Ownership (“Title”) of all Goods shall remain with longbeds until full payment has been received and the goods have been either collected or successfully delivered. Risk in Goods (including damage & loss) shall pass to you at the time when you collect the Goods or when we deliver the Goods.
